HOPE
Death and the Maiden was a common motif in Renaissance art, especially in painting and music. It was developed from the Dance of Death, with an added erotic subtext. Dance of Death, also called Danse Macabre, is an artistic genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death: no matter one’s station in life, the Dance of Death unites all.
